This book explores the impact of Tudor theatres in London. Using detailed illustrations and an entertaining text, it looks at why the permanent theatres were built, how they were built, who put on the plays and who went to watch them. Exploring these topics, readers will build up a picture of life in Tudor times; of people's social activities, their choice of entertainment and their changing beliefs and customs.
